Packaging Django apps

Packaging Django-aware libraries for distribution

March 07, 2013

Packaging apps so that they can be tested within a django context, but without having to add them to an existing django project is pretty easy to to, but takes a bit more work than a standalone application.

We recently pushed our django-errordite and python-errordite apps to PyPI, and as part of that process I was keen to ensure that . . .

Managing multiple Heroku configurations

Using Fabric and Git to manage Heroku environment configuration.

March 03, 2013

As previously discussed YunoJuno runs on Heroku. Doing so means adopting
their 12-Factor App philosophy, which has worked out great for us, and makes the project very clean in terms of separating code from configuration. One of its core tenets (and a requirement for hosting apps on Heroku) is the use of environment variables to store . . .

Using Fabric to automate pretty much everything

February 02, 2013

If you are a python developer and you don't already use Fabric, then you should. I can't imagine working without it.

When we started out on the YunoJuno journey we built a prototype, and deployed it. It worked. We deployed it to Heroku, which made things easy for us, as a deployment is really just a git push. Well, it's a . . .

January 12, 2013

Inspired by Etsy's 'Code as Craft', and built by humans, this is where we will be posting articles on tech as seen by the YJ team. This will be opinionated and personal, but hopefully also useful.
